appleJuce: Sooner or later the LCD screen on your camera (tablet, laptop or smartphone) will lose its luster due to the dust, dirt and smudges accumulating on its surface.

The 2oz appleJuce pump is ideal for use at home, in the studio, or on location. Its TSA-approved size is small enough for travel and fits easily in an organization case so appleJuce is handy whenever you need it. appleJuce is alcohol and ammonia free and it removes stains/oils from all screens, it also polishes the surface of your electronics. Environmentally friendly, appleJuce has a green apple scent and the package includes appleJuce solution in a 2oz pump bottle and two reusable screen cleaning cloths for a suggested retail price of $12.95.

No, this is not for photographers who are faint of heart. And yes, you’ll probably have very mixed feelings (to say the least) about what videographer and YouTube personality Casey Neistat decides to do to his malfunctioning Canon DSLR.

At 15,781 ft. above sea level Europe’s Mont Blanc doesn’t compare to the world’s tallest mountains, and it’s not one of the most difficult climbs. But thanks to an ambitious project led by Italian photographer Filippo Blengini, the peak does have the distinction of being the subject of the world’s largest photograph. Blengini and his international team managed the feat by shooting 70,000 images over a two-week period late last year to create the breathtaking, 365-gigapixel panorama of the mountain.

It’s been my experience that there are a handful of special objects in the world that have developed cachet or “mojo” and are emotionally appealing to people in various fields. Some of these unique items engage our interest because they’re otherwise unassuming objects which have become associated with unusual people or events. I think of the track shoes Roger Bannister wore on May 6, 1954 when he ran the world’s first sub-4 minute mile. I think of “Brownie” and “Blackie,” two of Eric Clapton’s Fender Stratocasters. The console Sam Phillips used in Sun Studios to record Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Roy Orbison must drip with “mojo,” as does Pete Seeger’s banjo, no doubt.
